Shop and skate in celebration of Domain Northside’s two-year anniversary next month. The upscale North Austin shopping center will offer the Great Skate event on Sept. 8 featuring an outdoor glow-in-the-dark skating rink, a photo booth and more.
Yes, you read that right: We get to be kids again as we break out our old skates and zoom around a course that runs through several streets, closed off to cars for that night only.
Portions of the streets of Domain Boulevard, Rock Rose Avenue and Palm Way will be transformed to host the old-school skating rink, which will also have music, prizes and swag. The Texas Rollergirls — the women's flat track roller derby league that helped to rejuvenate the sport — are making an appearance, too.
Don’t have skates? You can rent some for a suggested donation. The Austin Angels, a nonprofit that assists children and their caretakers in the foster care system, will also have a booth at the Great Skate.
Plus, the stores along the roller rink will remain open and just might have free items available in celebration of Domain Northside’s anniversary. The event is free, but you have to register on the Eventbrite page to secure a spot at the skating rink.
A few weeks later, Domain Northside is also bringing back its Northside Amplified music series. Lounge on the Northside lawn while listening to performances from Bidi Bidi Banda, the Peterson Brothers and more across the weekend of Sept. 29-30. For more information about either event, visit domainnorthside.com/events.
